Battletech: Daedalus by Mecha-Zone Battletech: Daedalus by Mecha-Zone
This is my illustration for the Daedalus Battlemech from the Battletech book "Historical: Operation Klondike". You can buy the book from your local game store or order it online. It's a great book and I highly recommend it!

This image is at 72 dpi... my original file was created at 600 dpi.

This is the 7th of 8.

This was a new design for the book. Very utilitarian and boring.

Here's the sketch with working grappler...

 Does this one run off a diesel engine?

I don't know for sure, but I don't think so. The diesel engine stuff is mostly from the dark ages timeline as far as I know.

YES! I like to see more than just robosoldiers!

One of my faave anime was PatLabour where 'Labour/mechs' were mainly used as construction equipment.


Any other 'not-just-battle' mechs?

Cool. You don't see many worker mechs in fiction for some odd reason.

I know what you mean. I don't even know how this mech fits into Battletech gameplay but I think there is a variant of it with some weapons instead of the loading arms.

Really like the practicality of this thing. There's a ton of skill that goes into making something look both mecha-y, and yet still functional and utilitarian. Awesome.

thanks! It is a different mindset form drawing war machines.
